Seeing the Club through the Eyes of a New Member

Seeing the Club through the Eyes of a New Member We recently chatted with brand–new member Tonja Crosby about her very first trip with Exclusive Resorts. She and her husband went with their two children and several family friends to one of our Peninsula Papagayo residences in Costa Rica.

Tonja emphasized how different this vacation was from trips her family had taken in the past, from the beautiful home to the attentive service. "It was the most enjoyable and relaxing vacation we've ever had. In the past, when we've vacationed with our five– and seven–year old children, we'd typically get a couple of hotel rooms. It was sometimes difficult to get an adjoining room for the kids and we didn't want to stay in just one room. Now we have a home."

Tonja's husband Chris was the one who first gravitated to the idea of Exclusive Resorts. "My husband loved the idea of all the different Club locations. He was definitely the one who thought it would be right for my family. And I'm so glad and grateful that we joined."

Their first trip was full of small, memorable moments. Getting familiar with local flavors during a private cooking lesson with Exclusive Resorts clubhouse chef Nicolas Devenelle. Exploring nearby villages and the surrounding countryside on an ATV tour. And, of course, spending plenty of time relaxing with their children and friends. "We had a private dinner one night by the pool. They set up a little table for us with lights and candles on stairs. There were touches and certain finishes on things that I've never experienced. I felt like a celebrity."

So what's next for this new member family? "We're going to let our kids pick the next destination for this summer. They love the pictures of the Exclusive Resorts homes in Lake Tahoe, so that's looking pretty good. And we plan on having more family get–togethers. Before we joined the Club we wouldn't have thought to go somewhere to meet our family members—we'd just go to their homes. I'm from Canada and maybe I can get my sisters and kids to meet at one of the Club's homes in Whistler. The Club has opened our minds to different vacations that we didn't think we could do before."

We are so glad to welcome the Crosbys into the Exclusive Resorts member family, and we look forward to providing them with memorable travel experiences for many years to come.
